Jackson, Miss. – When Tiger Woods won his fifth green jacket at The Masters this April, roughly 200 people received free clothing, courtesy of The Rogue, and paid for by Hole In One International’s sister company, Odds On Promotions, in a conditional rebate promotion.
For the past few seasons, The Rogue, an upscale men’s clothier in Jackson, has been running a promotion where if Tiger Woods won the Masters, everyone who purchased clothing during the week prior to the tournament, would receive a 100% rebate on all of their purchases.
This year, The Rogue not only made the same 100% rebate offer, they sweetened the deal by giving everyone a 20% discount on all purchases made during the promotional period. The retailer sold just over $30,000 worth of apparel before Woods shot a three-under 69 to claim his fifth green jacket, and Odds On was there to write the check to The Rogue and all their patrons.
For more information on creating an effective campaign using a sports or weather-based conditional rebate promotion to draw attention to your cause or business, email or give Hole In One International or Odds On Promotions a call today at 800-827-2249.
Laredo, Tex. – Congratulations to hole in one winner Armando Bustamante who won $100,000 this May, courtesy of IBC Bank-Laredo and paid for by Hole In One International.
Bustamante won the big bucks after he aced the 135-yard 12th hole with a 7-iron during the 36th annual IBC-Laredo Open Golf Tournament, which took place at the Laredo Country Club. According to witnesses, it was a great straight shot that landed about 5 feet from the hole and just rolled right in … and then the crowd went wild.
This was Bustamante’s second hole in one and it was the second time a lucky golfer had a big pay day at this event; the tournament had another $100K winner in 2017.
